Does your food processor leak?

14 years ago

Went to buy a new food processor recently. We bought the 9 cup kitchen aid. It was very nice until I noticed that there is a line on the bowl where liquid should not go above or it will leak. This is because the blade rests on a spindle that is very short. I looked at the other major brand and they are the same way. I took the kitchen aid back.

My old processor was an Oskar and its spindle was almost as tall as the bowl so you could have the liquid in the bowl almost to the top. This worked out good for the things we make the most namely fresh salsa and hummus.

Has anyone else noticed this problem? Does anyone know of a current day food process that you can put more liquid in? I know I could use a blender but the processor worked better.
